“Great drive with fabulous views, both day and night.”
Reviewed January 15, 2013

I've live in LA for over 20 years and I never get tired of driving Mulholland. Took my daughter and her friend a few months ago and took some great pics of them together. Definitely recommended!

“beautiful scenic views”
Reviewed January 11, 2013

The drive is a twisty one, enjoyed much more by the passengers than the driver. The views of the city below is beautiful. We did the drive close to sunset, so all the lights were on in the city below. Very nice. The houses are beautiful, but you really can't see much of them as they are all behind private gates. I don't think I would really do it for the chance to see a movie star (you won't), but the views are beautiful.

There are areas to pull off and take pictures, or just give the driver a chance to see what everyone in the car is ohing and ahhing about. lol

“Famous, yes. Worth a visit no.”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

The only thing notable about Mulholland drive is the view of the San Fernando Valley. So make sure that you are there on a clear day. This is another place that is visited by the "star-struck" so that one can say "I've been there." But in answer to the question, what did you see, the only response would be "I saw a gate that goes to a private development where Vanna White lives, I think."

“Beautiful drive”
Reviewed January 8, 2013

The family and I took Mulholland Drive, and it was certainly worth the twists and turns. The houses are beautiful, and it's quite amazing seeing homes where they actually built backyards! (Since many homes are built on the side of the hill/mountain, platforms are required to give flat space. The pull-off spots and the views are wonderful. If you are a person who enjoys to drive and doesn't mind keeping your eyes on the road (except in the pull-offs) while the family has a great time, this is a perfect destination.

“A great view”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

I've commuted on this road at times. Doesn't matter if it's day or night, the views are always spectacular. But it's a dangerous road, lots of hairpin turns -- better for the passengers than the driver! There are a couple of lookout spots, though, where you can pull over and see the City of Lights laid out before you. Fun.
